Ortus Redis Cache

v1.4.0+2303 Public

Ortus Redis Extension

The Ortus Redis Extension is a native Lucee Extension that allows your CFML server to connect to a Redis server/cluster and leverage it for built-in caching, session storage, and NoSQL document storage.

Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker. It supports data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs and geospatial indexes with radius queries. Redis has built-in replication, Lua scripting, LRU eviction, transactions and different levels of on-disk persistence, and provides high availability via Redis Sentinel and automatic partitioning with Redis Cluster.
